Special Rules

Spirit Familiars
Each Shaman takes to himself a totem animal, or Spirit- Familiar. The Spirit-Familiar is a guide in the realms of the Khai, and helps the Shaman communicate with his deities.
There a two spirit-familiars to choose from, and each one has its own strengths and weaknesses.
The Raven is commonly associated with death, but is comparatively small and weak. It is agile and has the ability to fly, but cannot sustain much injury. If you choose the Raven as your totem you may add +1 to your Move and +1 to your initiative, but must deduct -2 from your Wounds total.
The Wolf is lean and fast, and is known for its great endurance on long hunts. It is, however, eternally driven by its hunger and needs to feed to sustain itself. If you choose the Wolf as your totem your Warrior may add +1 to his Weapon Skill and an additional 2 Wounds. For every turn that there are no Monsters on the dungeon board, roll 1D6. On a roll of 1 you lose a wound, which may be recovered in the normal way.

You should choose your totem animal carefully as it will affect your Warrior throughout his entire adventuring life.

Blessings
Blessings are used in exactly the same way as a Wizard’s spells. Instead of Power they require Mana to use. During the game, anything that refers to spells, their effect and the
casting of will affect Blessings in exactly the same way. Some Blessings are marked with a symbol that indicates that they are offensive (Ο). This means they may only be
used in the same way as a Wizard’s Attack spells (during his own part of the Warriors’ Phase).

Mana
Mana is the power a Shaman uses to receive and bestow Blessings. The amount of Mana a Shaman possesses depends upon his level and the number of Warriors he is with. A Shaman has a number of Mana that he has built up during meditation and prayer, and this is treated exactly like a Wizard’s store of innate power, it is expended and then regained between dungeons. Rather than using the power dice to determine how much Mana he gains from turn to turn, consult the following chart. Cross reference their Shaman’s level with the number of other Warriors on the same board section. He gets a set amount of Mana according to his Battle-level plus the amount shown on the table below. A Warrior who is on 0 Wounds contributes half the normal points (rounding fractions up, so at battlelevels 1 and 2 a Warrior on zero Wounds is still worth one point of Mana). Obviously a Warrior who starts the Power phase on 0 Wounds is dead and contributes nothing, but
the Shaman’s Mana is not set once the Power phase is finished. If a Warrior is reduced to 0 Wounds the Shaman will lose the corresponding amount from his Mana (i.e. half the amount a Warrior is worth). If he has insufficient Mana he must expend it from his Innate Mana or lose D6 Wounds per excess point lost.

Totem Staff
The power of the totem staff can be used once per adventure allowing the shaman to add 2d6 mana to his total for that turn only.

MANA 4
These Blessings require 4 points of Mana to be invoked.

1 Soul-bind (Ο)
The Shaman links his soul with the spirit of a Monster ’s, so
that the two of them become spiritually linked.
Select a single Monster on the same board section. Every
time the Shaman takes damage roll 1D6. On a roll of 6, the
target Monster also takes D6 Wounds, with no deductions
for anything (Toughness, armour, Ignore Pain, etc.).

2 Robe of Fire
The Shaman calls on Urkov to protect his follower and a
curtain of small flames erupts around him.
This Blessing may be used on any Warrior on the same
board section as the Shaman (including the Shaman
himself). The Robe of Fire adds +2 to the target’s
Toughness, which is still effective against attacks that
normally avoid Toughness and armour.

3 Cleansing Flame
Blue nimbuses of light pass into the body of a wounded
Warrior as the Shaman performs the rites of this Blessing.
The Warrior grimaces in pain as his body seems to be
consumed by fire, but the flames die down and the Warrior
finds his wounds are healed.
This Blessing may be used on any Warrior on the same
board section as the Shaman (including the Shaman
himself). Roll 1D6; on a result of 1 or 2 nothing happens,
on a roll of 3 or more the Warrior has that many Wounds
healed.

as the Shaman (including the Shaman’s weapons). Any
attacks with that weapon cause an extra +1 Wound and the
weapon is treated as magical for that turn.

voice calls out to the power of Hiskai. In reply Hiskai sends
a shimmering wall of force that surrounds the chosen
Warrior

1D6. The result is the number of attacks that the force wall
is in place for. Any Monsters which attack the warrior
while the Blessing is in play are at -1 to hit the Target
Warrior. After D6 attacks have been directed at the target
Warrior, Monster’s may attack the warrior as normal.

sword arm into a the billowing cloud that appears above

does normal damage and counts as magical.

aloft. He chants his prayer to Urkov and the end of the stick
bursts into flame, turning it into a blazing torch.

himself). The target gains +1 Strength and +2 Move for a
